Archie Rose Distilling Co. has joined forces with Victorian boutique brewer Kaiju! Beer for an intriguingly weird, yet delicious new spirit, Behemoth Aged.\r\n\r\nBehemoth Aged Is the result of distilling Kaiju!\u2019s Double India Black Ale two and a half times then ageing the spirit for two years in bourbon casks. This innovative drink offers vibrant notes of pineapple, lychees, aged rum and soy sauce and is best served neat.\r\n\r\nThe collaboration between distiller and brewer was borne from a shared belief in innovation and pushing the envelope. Behemoth Aged is also the first release under the Archie Rose Concepts label, reserved for the most progressive and experimental Archie Rose releases.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cOur nature at Archie Rose is to be innovative and progressive. We can be quite restless, and being a young company, we like to explore,\u201d says Dave Withers, Master Distiller for Archie Rose. \u201cLike Archie Rose, Kaiju! Beer is driven by an appetite for discovery, so this was really cool way to launch our Concepts label as a way of sharing our most unique and unusual creations in limited quantities and single batches.\u201d\r\n\r\n\u201cThe beer has been in two ex-bourbon barrels for nearly two years,\u201d adds Callum Reeves, Chief Boss Kaiju! Beer. \u201cWe think people are going to be surprised by how the intense, tropical fruit and savoury notes of the original new make spirit have married with, and been enhanced by the ex-bourbon maturation. It\u2019s a beast!\u201d\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nArchie Rose Distilling Co. x Kaiju! Beer\u2019s Behemoth Aged Spirit is 52% ABV with a price tag of RRP: $249. It will be available in extremely limited quantities from today.\r\n\r\nThis is not the first time we\u2019ve brought word of a collaboration between distiller and brewer. Back in 2017, Jameson Caskmates partnered with Newtown\u2019s Young Henrys for beer-seasoned whiskey.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
